Violin virtuosa Midori and frequent accompanist Özgür Aydin take the Bing stage for the first time with a fresh and subtle exploration of immortal works by the “Three B’s”: Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms. Citing Midori as “a study in concentration” in concert, Los Angeles Times critic Mark Swed added, “She is intense and forceful but never showy. I know of no violinist with a more sensitive nor respectful sense of vibrato, which allows her to let every note speak and none to over-speak.”
